Socialist Vote Increasing.
Early returns in this county would
indicate that the Socialist vote is in
creasing materially with each elec
tion. Where a few years ago it was
the "Republicans and Democrats who
fought out the county and state
tickets, it is now Republicans and
Socialists. The Socialists are giv
ing the. Republicans a close run for
several county offices this year.
The Soo Line Special.
Bemidji will be host to leading
farm extension workers of the state
on Saturday afternoon. They are
coming with a special train of eleven
cars over the Soo line and will be
here from 3 p. m. Saturday to 9 a.
m." Monday. This visit is important
to the business men of this city as
well as to the- farmers as the word
has gone forth that there are no
farmers near Bemidji. By personal
solicitation and any other available
menas the business men musjt get
their farmer customers in to see that
train Saturday. It is a complete
farm on wheels and a college educa
tion in itself.
Bemidji's IFire Engine.
It has been suggested sometime in
the past that Bemidji dispose of her
fire, engine..: Just what the depart
ment would have done without it at
the' Re"x hotel fire is hard to realize
as the engine furnished the only
source of supply for the entire .city
for a period of more than two hours.
When the water supply from the
pumping station gave'out the engine
crew was called upon to extend it
self and did fine work. The crew is
composed of the following members:
Fred Bursley, Rube Miller and John
Cline. It is believed that this dem
onstration will result in dispensing
with the idea that Bemidji should
sell its, engine.
The Rex Hotel Fire.
The Rex hotel fire has brought
home to every one in Bemidji two
1. That the man who does not
take out insurance it the gambler
and the man who insures plays safe.
2. That Bemidji has adequate
fire fighting apparatus and service
but an inadequate water supply.
The first point needs little elabora
tion. The man who does not insure
bets that he will never have a fire.
The man who does insure takes no
chances and if he is fortunate
enough to be skipped he knows that
his money is helping some one else.
Bemidji has pumps and mains
large enough and strong enough to
hold five. times as much water as
was available yesterday and at three
times the pressure. The attention
of the council has been brought re
peatedly to the fact that the city is
depending upon one well for its
water supply and that that well is
good for but 200 gallons per minute.
Instead of taking, prompt action, the
council has been delaying the mat
ter several months.
It -is impractical to pump water
out of the lakes except in cases of
emergency,' as the water has been
condemned by the state health offi
cer* The one thing left for the. city
to do is to put down more wells and
$1,000 or $1,500 in wells yesterday
would probably have saved the hotel.
Aft. it .was, not enough water could
be/thrown into the building and at
times the pressure would not carry
the stream to the third floor.
Bemidji has had two bad fires al
ready this year, and they are not.
good 'for the insurance rate. The
hotel was supposedly fireproof
building, yelf'tftfrtiea like tinder once
thQ'fiameB were beyond control. The
faihrreTrf^he wa^er supply seriously
menaced, the entire down town sec
tion. At one time, at least, last sum
mer the stand pipe and tank was
dry and had there been a serious fire
at that time, the city would have
been at the mercy of the flames, as
the 200 gallons a minute from the
one well would not have been a drop
in the bucket to the water needed.
The Rex hotel is a big loss and a
blow. It should serve as a
warning and proper steps should be
taken by the' council $0 further safe
guard the property of the city.

When people read about the cures
